Client reviews

"I was very apprehensive to start with and knew I needed to share my feelings, traumas and deep emotions which I have been carrying around with me for many years.  A couple of years ago I was hit with some devasting news no parent wants to hear and dealing with this in my heart and head was the most difficult news to process.  I carried on but it then came to a point where I could not deal with my emotions anymore and this caused me stress and anxiety which I had never experience before, yes I worried about things but real stress and becoming anxious I could really feel throughout my body.


I then asked for help and was recommended to Denise my councillor and we spoke about things that were buried so deep inside which I never thought I could do as everything had built up inside and so jumbled up, I really didn’t know where to begin.


Through my sessions I was taught that it is ok not to be ‘ok’ and that every persons feelings is personal to them and there is no right or wrong in how you feel because your feeling are real to you, it made me see things differently and appreciate me as a person better than I used to feel about myself – it taught me that I need to try and put myself first and do what is better for me – I reflect on my therapy conversations and try to think before going back to how I was.  I am still not quite there yet but with what I have been taught and shown I use this to my advantage. 


I would like to continue with therapy at some point as I think with the right person it can help and make you look at things differently and in perspective.  I still have a way to go and am learning along my journey."

"I am incredibly grateful for the support I have received from Denise, working with her has had a profound impact on my well-being.


I was initially doubtful about attending counselling, however by my second visit, I felt optimistic and at ease with the sessions. Denise has an exceptional ability to create a safe and non-judgmental space where I could freely express my thoughts and emotions. Her compassion and active listening skills made me feel heard and understood in a way I had never experienced before.


Denise's expertise in the field of mental health is evident in every session. She has provided me with valuable insights and practical strategies to help me manage my anxieties. Her guidance has helped me to tap into my own strengths and experiences and take control of my mental health journey. 


If you are seeking a mental health counsellor who is compassionate, knowledgeable, and invested in your well-being, I wholeheartedly recommend Denise."

"I have bipolar disorder and started seeing Denise after a manic episode which was followed by a heavy depression and experiencing suicidal thoughts. 


Denise offers a reassuringly safe, quiet and comfortable environment. These conditions have enabled me to open up and try to make sense of my thoughts and feelings. I feel that Denise has a special ability to keep the room silent at crucial times before offering her summary and take on what has been said.


I look forward to the sessions and when I reflect back can see steady growth and greater stability. Thank you.”

"I have been seeing Denise for therapy for almost a year now. I am not new to therapy, so have some previous experiences to draw upon. The thing I have found the most helpful during my sessions with Denise is her use of lots of different tools and skills to help me get to the root of what my concerns or issues are. Working together in this way has been helpful as one approach may work when I’m dealing with a specific anxiety, for example, but something else may be more beneficial when I’m trying to access difficult memories and emotions. Denise holds a therapeutic space which is always non-judgemental, empathetic, and understanding. Speaking about emotions and trauma is not easy for me and although I have not pursued official diagnosis yet, I have long suspected I may be on the autistic spectrum. I have been able to explore this with Denise in a way that doesn’t feel as though there’s something wrong with me and how I process the world, and she shows a good understanding and awareness of how I may process things differently than others. Therapy is never easy; you must be prepared to put in the work yourself and not expect the therapist to fix your problems, but I can attest to the fact that Denise will be supportive, encouraging, understanding, and professional while you do that hard work together."  

Denise i want to thank you for all the moments you offered me and the fact that i met you in a very difficult period of my life, i wanted to overcome all the difficult situations in my life and become myself again. I know i have a long way to go but without you i dont think i would be here today. 

Thank you for everything Denise ! You’ve really helped me and i
